Brandon Miller had set over a handful of records at the AAU level entering his first year of high school at St. Louis John Burroughs (MO) High in 2017.
So it was only a matter of time before the freshman mid-distance wonder was at it for his high school track and field team.
Over the weekend, the 14-year-old not only claimed his first state title at the Missouri Track and Field Championships in Jefferson City, but he also secured a freshmen class record in the 800m with his time of 1:50.84 in the Class 3A race.
Miller broke the previous national freshmen record of 1:51.03 held by Michael Granville of Bell Gardens, California, back in 1993. Granville eventually went on to set the national record of 1:46.45 in 1996.
It followed an age group world record for 14-year-olds last July at the AAU Junior Olympics in Houston, where Miller ran a winning time of 1:51.23.
Miller's Class 3A time stood as the state championship's best 800m performance across all classifications and stands as a US No. 15 mark and US No. 1 for all freshmen.
Miller also contributed to wins in the 4x200, 4x400 and 4x800 as John Burroughs earned a Class 3A team title over Reeds Springs by two points.
